Good Morning Sausage Egg Bites

INGREDIENTS

Sausage Meatballs
1 lb ground turkey
1 Tbsp Rory Brown Breakfast Sausage Seasoning

Egg Mixture
5 large eggs
1/2 Cup whole milk (or unsweetened almond milk)
1 tsp Rory Brown Breakfast Sausage Seasoning

Optional Toppings
finely shredded cheese
nutritional yeast
fresh basil ribbons
crushed chile (Maras or Aleppo would be fabulous!)
bacon crumbles

STEPS
Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside. Mix together ground turkey and sausage seasoning, making sure the seasoning is evenly distributed throughout the meat.

Scoop a scant Tablespoon of the sausage mixture and, using your hands, form into a ball. Repeat with the remaining sausage, placing shaped meatballs 1/2 inch apart on prepared baking sheet. Bake for 12 minutes.

When there are about 5 minutes left on the meatballs, whisk together eggs, milk, and 1 tsp sausage seasoning. Set aside.

Generously spray a mini muffin pan with non-stick spray. Place one meatball (no need to cool, just be careful!) in each muffin cup.
Carefully pour the egg mixture over the meatballs, filling each cup about 2/3 full. This is easiest using a tablespoon to “ladle” the eggs into the muffin cups. Sprinkle any additional optional toppings over the egg mixture.

Place the muffin pan on a rimmed baking sheet and bake at 350°F for 12 minutes, or until eggs have set.

Remove from oven and allow bites to cool in pan for 5 minutes. Using a spoon, carefully remove the egg bites and place on a cooling rack.

Enjoy right away or freeze for up to two weeks!

Recipe Notes:
If you want something heartier than just “a bite,” use a full size muffin pan! Simply use two meatballs instead of one, and allow eggs to bake for 20 minutes.

To reheat from frozen, wrap the bites in a damp paper towel and microwave at 90 second intervals until desired temperature.

This recipe also works well with ground pork, but that will increase the fat content.
